intellectual, too. >> opec and the fed, hey, u.s. production up. let's go to sharon epperson at the nymex. >> oil has really been on the move since the open a few minutes ago. not so much opec, which still packed with the current quota around 30 million barrels per day, it is producing more than that. but we are hearing, of course, from opec itself that saudi arabia has reduced its production in november to the lowest level in a year. so that seems to be a way that they will adhere closer to the current quota. we're also looking at the latest report from the international energy agency which may have more of an impact where oil prices are going in this session. they're looking for slightly demand in 2013. and they're pointing to china for the reason. we're anticipating we'll get the report from the energy department at 10:30 a.m. on oil supplies. the expectation is for a slight decline in food supplies. but we did see a major build in the industry report, if that is confirmed we could see these gains short-lived. back to you. >> all right. thank you very much, sharon epperson. we've got a
on the throne. her diamond jubilee marked the beginning of britain taking center stage. and at the london opec the queen had a starring role. >> good evening. >> good evening, your majesty. >> reporter: the queen shows little sign of slowing down,y about her oldest grandson now has to choose between his job as a helicopter pilot and becoming a full-time royal. >> the queen at 86, of course, is key for prince william to get more involved in the workings of the royal family. >> reporter: we know prince william will definitely have a new role in 2013. he'll become a dad. whatever the coming year brings for the royals, there will be at least one reason to celebrate. for "today," nbc news, london. >> it has been an amazing year for them. although the james bond image, the first that comes in my mind now. >> oh, from the -- >> whenever i see -- >> the queen. i loved it. it was cute. getting a little bit more life out of him there. fun. >>> up next, from "call me maybe" to "gangnam style" the lo year in social media. first these messages. ♪ ♪ spread a little love my way ♪ spread a little someth
with the opec meeting. in addition to the fed that comes out tomorrow. the expectation is, that opec will leave their current quota unchanged, around 30 million barrels per day. the actual production, around 31 million barrels a day. there may not be any change to that. the key will be what happens in terms of the election of a new secretary-general and saudi arabia in the running for that as well. back to you. >> thanks very much, sharon epperson. i did want to look at shares of largest for-profit hospital in the country. a secondary offering this morning. hga finds itself in the of so many movements of the capital structure, reflective of the 250i78s. don't forget, they borrow at incredibly low rates not long ago, $1 billion, to pay a special dividend. you want to pay a special dividend prior to any tax increase on dividends as well. capital gains figuring into that debate, let's call it at this point that we've been detailing down in d.c. with our "mission critical" coverage. this morning, two of the owners of hca, it was a huge leverage back in '05, and '06, almost four times their money at
. the opec nations, what they're doing to us is incredible. and i look at what's going on and all we do is just kick the ball down the road, keep going along. i'd rather go over the cliff and make the big deal. don't forget, we have a very important moment coming up in about a month and that's the debt ceiling. and for those people that don't get it, that think the republicans have no cards, and unfortunately, you know, i'm a republican and i can tell you we have lots of cards. the republican negotiators have lots of cards because we have the debt ceiling coming up. >> juliet: i actually sort of wanted to segueway into that. you mentioned leadership on both sides of the aisle questioning the strength of the leadership. lindsey graham was on fox news yesterday and he said a couple things that were interesting. and one thing, he used the term, the president won. you elaborate more, and you can't take it out of context. what's the feelings about how the republicans have, and since you are a republican, how they have a.c.t.ed and negotiated throughout the course of this entire drama? >> i s
pointing going into 1q, the reason, it sort of rhymes in the spirit of the season. you have non-opec demand growing, global demand slowing, it's not snowing, and down is where we're going. the next big data point is probably the iaea report in february. and if that implicates more progress toward an iranian bomb, there's significant risk to look to the upside. in the meantime, you have a lot of other issues beyond the fiscal cliff. debt ceiling issues, if not resolved in the negotiation looming. and relatively long stocks here in the u.s. perhaps the most interesting part, becky, is to look at the convergence between light and heavy grades here in north america. we have a lot of light oil. and we're actually potentially short of heavy oil. so seeing convergence within that downward trend means there could be a bid for heavier. >> you would guess that would certainly hurt demand. >> sure. offsetting weakness in the dollar would lift the crude price based on historical trends, of course. yeah, it would be a significant blow, and when we're looking at 370 plus barrels of commercial inventories
's where crude oil breaks out to the upside. we start to get an upward trend. opec's 2013 target is around $100. i think we'll move up into the mid-90s and probably press through that $100. one of the burdens we have is we do have an abundance of supply in the u.s. the u.s. won't export any crude oil, but i think the possibility of us starting to consume more, would drive and help support those higher prices. >> when you put on those longs, i'm wondering, because this week is a holiday shortened week. congress is coming back on the 27th. is this a trade for 2013? >> yeah, it is more of a trade for 2013. i wiould start to look at fartherer out contracts, to like december 2013, and play the entire year's action, just by being long that one contract. but i would strongly wait until after the beginning of the year, because of the weaker volume, the lack of participants. and i think that the price is really going to shop around. >> nat gas prices taking a step back. what do you see in the immediate future and what is the main catalyst here? the weather seems to be sort of calm. >> yeah. that's
